Earlier this month, Lowe marked the opening of The Shay, a 148-room boutique hotel that is operated by Hyatt through its Destination Hotel brand. The six-story edifice, located at the northwest corner of Washington and National Boulevards includes a rooftop pool and bar, a ballroom, meeting spaces, and ground-floor restaurant space.
Ivy Station, built on a site that previously served as a park-and-ride facility for Metro's Culver City Station, also includes a 200-unit apartment complex dubbed the Residences at Ivy Station. The mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom units are located directly north of the hotel, and accompany amenities such as a fitness center, a pool, and co-working space.
At the northernmost section of the property, adjacent to Venice Boulevard, a 240,000-square-foot office building now serves as the West Coast home of HBO parent company WarnerMedia.
The project also includes 50,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, a roughly 32,000-square-foot park-like space which opens on the Metro station entrance, and basement parking for more than 1,500 vehicles.
In recent years, the neighborhood surrounding Culver Station has become a new hub for the tech and media industry. Apple now leases a 128,000-square-foot office building across the street from Ivy Station, and is slated to develop a more than 500,000-square-foot office campus on properties to the north.
